About TDR™/MCR and AZTDR™

AZTDR™ is the book they said would never happen — but thanks to 1,324 Kickstarter backers, it’s here at last. TDR™/MCR will see Anderson will talk through highlights from the new book, describing the process and approach behind some of the studio’s most significant projects, "33.3 years after The Designers Republic™ was declared in SoYo (North of Nowhere), 25 years after a TDR™ book was first discussed and ten years after the fall and rise of The Designers Republic Phase One".

AZTDR™ includes 250 different album and single covers; 140 prints, posters and flyers; over 130 images of TDR™ print-based and editorial projects; 23 DR Angryman variants; five Coke bottles; four badges; one Swatch watch; a T-shirt, a mug and much, much more.

“It’s not everything but it’s everything you need to know (for now),” says Anderson. "You could call it Volume One if it helps. It’s not a monograph, it’s our idea of what ideas look like — a mix(ed) up of what you want to see, and what we want you to see, refereed by Tony, Adrian and Mark at Unit. Hopefully it’s a book about why we do what we do featuring the usual suspects and a few suspect devices. Critics might call it an overview — we call it a mission statement.”
